Casillas and Del Bosque: in football there are also cronyism
Casillas and Vicente del Bosque today reflect well the current situation of a country in frank decomposition. And is that the Spanish goal has met 150 international matches in Finland in the worst possible way to do it. Without being a starter on your team, with more than half a year on the bench only interrupted by his time at the Red, the Madrid goalkeeper has once again defended the Spanish goal to the amazement of the whole world.
Not because i don't deserve it, not because I'm not a good goalkeeper, which of course it is, but for the forms. A serious team, and let's not say, world and european champion, double entry, cannot afford to offer an image like the one that Spain is offering all over the planet. Because there is a Roman saying that says that Caesar's wife must not only be honored, but look like it, and transferred to football, the world champion not only has to be, but to act as such.
That Iker Casillas goes to the call today is a scandal of herculean dimensions, I repeat, not because it's not good, but because it exhausts both his credit and that of the coach. For the goalkeeper the situation is complicated. Send more than the coach, run the show, too much power, What's up? His ownership sows doubts. For Forest, the issue is even sharper. Putting it in the headline means losing credit by leaps and bounds, increase the plug-in in football society and set a very bad example to society and the bad staff, that can even lead to a bad internal environment.
What can Víctor Valdés think, one of the best goalkeepers in the world and in his best form, when he doesn't play? The same as that boy who can't get into a decent job because he has a plugged-in friend of…? May be. And Diego López? How is it explained that he does not go to the national team having a great last season and the beginning of this one and his substitute partner goes?
Where are the merits? What good is work? Del Bosque operates like this and nobody disputes him because the results prove him right. Perhaps because, like in Real Madrid, it has unique players with whom winning is easier than usual.. Having said this, no merit should be taken away from Don Vicente, but the shadows grow.
Putting Iker Casillas as the starter means setting a bad example of professionalism and getting carried away by other things. A nice…that we go back to the time of Clemente and Zubizarreta.
